Can a divided America survive?

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

"The United States is currently the world’s oldest democracy.

But America is no more immune from collapse than were some of history’s most stable and impressive consensual governments. Fifth-century Athens, Republican Rome, Renaissance Florence and Venice, and many of the elected governments of early 20th-century Western European states eventually destroyed themselves, went bankrupt or were overrun by invaders.


The United States is dividing as rarely before. Half the country, mostly liberal America, is concentrated in 146 of the nation’s more than 3,000 counties — in an area that collectively represents less than 10 percent of the U.S. land mass. The other half, the conservative red states of the interior of America, is geographically, culturally, economically, politically and socially at odds with blue-state America, which resides mostly on the two coasts.

The two Americas watch different news. They read very different books, listen to different music and watch different television shows. Increasingly, they now live lives according to two widely different traditions.
Barack Obama was elected president after compiling the most left-wing voting record in the U.S. Senate. His antidote, Donald Trump, was elected largely on the premise that traditional Republicans were hardly conservative.

Red America and Blue America are spiraling into divisions approaching those of 1860, or of the nihilistic hippie-straight divide of 1968..."

They have proven there is not working with them.  When we give; they take and only want more, while they laugh at how the GOP caves in to them.

Its win or lose.  The only way our America survives is to beat their ass (and when they resist and obstruct by breaking some law, prosecute them and send them to prison)

We don't want the same America; they hate the America we all Love; Plain and simple.  How do you reconcile that?

Big picture, as long as the various branches respect their roles, we'll be fine. My understanding of the electorate is that we've been divided more than united, historically. Ever read some of the things said in the press from a hundred years ago?  Shocked

  

For too long have we sat under the thumb of mankind! The time has come to *oppose* that thumb!

Stay with the King
Become independent

Keep Slavery and allow it to expand 
Don't allow it expand and some day in the future end it

Continue segregation at specific times- Left wing
End segregation- right wing

Return to segregation?

Only if we are deplorable.

"In the first place, the dichotomy between "theoretical" and "practical" is a false one. In economics, all arguments are theoretical. And, since economics discusses the real world, these theoretical arguments are by their nature "practical" ones as well." M Rothbard
